Discussion: Social Turning Point of 1960s and 1970s in Japan
Films are inseparably connected to both the surrounding world and the tradition of filmmaking. The festival programme at Korjaamo includes themed discussions that deepen the understanding of, or open new viewpoints to, the festival’s films.
In Japan, the turn of the 1960s and 1970s represented a social turning point, when the old was rebelled against in many areas. Provocation was also present in the arts and media, for example in erotic pinku films and in new forms of musical expression. At the same time, established production systems still affected film, music and television. Lasse Lehtonen, researcher and writer of a recent book on Japanese music, discusses the theme.
Sat 16.3. 17:50 Korjaamo lobby. Before the screening of Dare To Stop Us.
